A Sluggard's Guide to Understanding the News


Let's be real - you cant remember the last time you picked up a newspaper. Watching the news on television just adds to your anxiety and depression that already exists in your own little world. AND, ain't nobody got time for searching and scrolling through articles on your iPhone in attempt to stay updated on what goes on. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT HALF OF THAT MEANS.

BUT - two ladies in their 20's have changed the news game by launching theSkimm: a free 6:00 a.m. daily newsletter sent to your e-mail that sums up everything you need to know about what's happening in the world right now.... Termed in simple, humorous, with a dash of sarcasm, words. The best part? theSkimm was launched while sitting on the couch. And I thought I was lazy.





So while sitting at your gimmick of a job, too lazy to pick and choose which Huffington Post articles are worth the read before your boss walks by, do yourself a favor and subscribe to theSkimm. Why wouldn't you want to start your day finding out that Ireland accidentally legalized Ecstasy, Mushrooms, and Ketamine for a whole 24 hours?

Swap theSkimm with your daily Groupon e-mail subscription that always has a ridiculous fine-print anyway. You'll only get one e-mail a day, I promise.
